The Houston Texans will be getting ready to face the Jacksonville Jaguars without quarterback Matt Schaub, who was officially placed on injured reserve today. In some good news however, the Texans got back wide receiver Andre Johnson, who practiced in full, after missing time with a hamstring injury. Safety Danieal Manning also returned to practice in a limited capacity and it's possible he could play on Sunday.
Only one Texans player missed practice, fullback Lawrence Vickers, who is dealing with a hamstring injury. Three other Texans were limited in practice, but their current status for the game is unknown.
Getting back Johnson and Manning on the offense and defense does make the Texans better on both sides of the ball than they were in the first meeting.
